OM manager Jorge Sampaoli criticized the financial means at the disposal of this weekend's opponents in his news conference leading up to Sunday night's match between Marseille and Paris Saint-Germain.

In an interview with RMC Sport, the Argentine spoke about the possibility of confronting his compatriot Lionel Messi on Sunday, as well as the fact that he had not spoken to him since managing him with the Argentina national team.

“Football is very important from a financial perspective, and even from a political one. You can now see a country that buys a club, and thus the best players. It makes things difficult. You have Mbappé, Di María, Neymar and Messi all on the same team. Only a country can do that. Mbappé and all of those other players mentioned can change the course of a match with a single move.”

“The memories I have of Messi are of seeing him train and be on the pitch. Unfortunately I didn’t have a favourable situation from which to enjoy it much, but I never changed my mind regarding him. He’s had a great career at the highest level, he’s an eternal player, thanks to his professionalism and dedication. It’ll be a pleasure to watch him play again, even if it’s difficult because he can hurt us a lot at any moment.”
